Youngest Filipino Chessmaster gets title at 7 years old!

Most kids at 7 years old are watching TV or playing outside, but not youthful Chessmaster Master Alekhine Nouri. He spends his time learning about chess from books and practicing his skils.

“Our daily routine features 10 hours of training; no computer games, no TV. We only ease up on Sundays,” the chess prodigy’s father and personal coach Hamed Nouri said in Filipino.

Alekhine won the title of FIDE Chess Master only 2 years after learning the game. He is the youngest FIDE Master in the world!
